Discussion in 'K-pop' started by Wills, Oct 20, 2020.
@Wills you did brilliant job! The rate was fun and reminded me of so much SweeTune gems.
Ah, dammit, I missed the finale :(
Oh well, I still loved reading your eliminations posts, @Wills! Like everybody else said, you did a tremendous job and I thank you for introducing me to the wonders of the Sweetune production team (and to the main singles of a lot of KPJ girl group darlings!). What will your new rate consist of? Monotree productions? Is that information public already? I have to prepare beforehand!!
Now I'll see if I find the time to be a rate villain again and submit a ballot for the Kara rate ddd (don't think @RUNAWAY would accept one with an 8 for STEP, would he?...)
make up for it with a 11 for Pandora
Great question! I haven't finalized plans yet (and likely won't until over the summer honestly), but I'll try to share details when I can. I'll plan on posting those here, so I recommend hitting "Watch Thread!"
In the meantime, never hurts to listen to as much MonoTree as possible - though that'd be good advice even if there weren't a rate!
That one was mid-tier Kara for me, but it'd be interesting to see if my scores would change now that I've already familiarized myself with their singles discography.
Hahaha ok, I'll make sure to follow your advice!!
I don’t know where to put this but I think it’ll be perfect here
Ugh, Sweetune are so sweet. I will forever be a stan.
Ahh thank you for sharing this! I also just watched through the full interview (linked below) and... ugh. "I will forever be a stan" really says it all. The depths of their partnership with the groups they've worked with has always been apparent in the final product, but it's a joy to hear them talk about it in detail. Their approach has always been so uncynical: they've never cut corners in executing their vision, and they have a treasure trove of a discography to show for it.
I'd recommend this interview to any of you: I was smiling the whole time... and even a little emotional? The bit around 3:30 where Jaeho laments that their approach is dated... ffff I'm not quite ready to process that just yet, but I really hope they know just how beloved their work has always been.
@soratami I see you catching up on this rate....
And would like to invite you to participate in the KARA discography rate!
Votes are due May 31st, and that IS the extended date. Please start listening! I really don't want to flop......
I've been avoiding participating in too many K-Pop lately as I always end up falling behind on following the eliminations (case in point, and I also still need to catch up KSOTY, 3rd Gen debuts, T-Ara, etc), but I will try!
Anyway, this really was a fantastic rate, thanks for hosting @Wills! I actually meant to have participated the finale watch2gether, but it ended up slipping my mind and by the time I joined the room it was already over ff. I'm definitely looking forward to the MonoTree one.
I'm not even that big a BG hater, I'm just happy I won't ever have to listen to another BOYFRIEND song in my life.
